1. PRINCIPAL’S CORNER
Dear OLMC Community,
As we conclude another week of school I want to remind families of the importance of following the parking lot procedures. These procedures are in place for the safety of the children. Please do not park in front of the Church after school to pick up your child or drop them off in front in the morning. If you have someone picking up your child, such as grandma or an aunt, please review the parking lot procedures with them prior to coming to school. We have had a few instances this past week of people entering the exit or parking in the north parking lot and trying to leave when the children are leaving. Kids are fast and one mistake could be tragic. We also have the crosswalk that I encourage you to please use as there is a teacher there to help the students cross safely.
I want to thank the Dad’s Club for helping the kindergarten with their garden. This past Saturday some of the Dad’s came out with dirt for the plant boxes and the garden. They also worked on prepping it for planting!
